Do you guys feel like this site still has a purpose? To prevent the usual case of people who post once in a blue moon suddenly coming out of the woodwork to post in this thread, I'd ask that you not post in this thread if you haven't made a single post in the last 40 days but looking back, that just leaves Pipes, Lunacy, Spike, Mein, Omm (who made two posts), Mikie, Me, and KoG (or maybe it's another anon

well, I have posted here recently.

People have moved on to Ponyville and other places, former being currently far better imageboard even in my eyes considering nature of discussion occuring here overall nowadays (sorry).

Did Moony ever talk to you about merging this site with Ponyville? It occured during discussion we had other day. It’s your imageboard, but I think that’s something worth to consider about.

All I know is that this was meant as a bunker for Ponychan "drama". You're the founder of the site and should see its use however you see fit.

>People have moved on to Ponyville and other places
Considering Moony's popularity, I kind of figured that would happen.
And he didn't talk to me about it.

The drama that started this site is long gone, but I'm not going to just delete it without any input.

You and KoG were the only ones who came here

i did post in the last 40 days. only once.. but i did,so..

..i don't know,honestly. i mean..i still stop by more or less daily, and i have good memories tied up in this site, but, for me personally at least, i've almost nothing to say or do here ever?

granted, i don't much of anywhere so not a solid measurement really..
but, i don't know, conversations don't happen as much anymore, or when they do they die so fast that giving input just seems like a hand raise saying "i'm here to have an input too" but nothing beyond that.. i can only speak for myself,but it just isn't engaging?

i'd be sad to see lunachan dissapear :c
but maybe keeping it going without anything going on is just as sad?

i don't know.. i'd say i will miss the place, but.. i kind of, already miss it?

I see, shoulda seen that coming. But that might be also because I said "i'm not sure what to think about that" after suggesting to talk to you. I donno, he's pretty scatterbrained at times.

>Everyone went to Moony's site because they are sheep that follow a lying pathetic piece of shit that selectively reads only posts that dont call him out on his bullshit
How is he a pathetic lying piece of shit? And knee jerk reactions aside, why are they calling him out? Because his site is populated by a lot of people who either haven't posted on Ponychan in a long time or still post on Ponychan?
Yeah I know I missed a few people. I didn't mean for it to sound like "Only these people are allowed to post"
Also, Audrey is a she.
>Youve been around a fair while now, and its never been massively popular right?
The crowds came in waves.
>at the end of the day the running of the site is coming out of your pocket
Paying for the domain name (most domain names through namecheap.com usually cost between $10 and $15) aside, I don't pay for it. Spike pays for the server costs, and he has his own stuff unrelated to Lunachan on the server as well.
Even if I did allow that stuff, and whether or not I should have in the first place is debatable, I doubt Lunachan is or would have gone anywhere fast.
If I do kill it off, it's not going to suddenly disappear, I'll make it read-only, so people can still view the pages, but not post.

See the above about the list.
>but, for me personally at least, i've almost nothing to say or do here ever?
I think that's how it is for most people. Lunachan unfortunately stagnated because the userbase shrank so much.
Also above, it won't suddenly *poof* and disappear, if I did close it, I'd set it to read only for a while.
>but.. i kind of, already miss it

I did at one point say that Lunachan was available and had a similar purpose, but he preferred starting a new one.
I guess in addition to setting it to read only, I could also provide a link to Ponyville
Rin is awesome.

See above.

I would guess you feel the site no longer has a purpose.

I check the site sometimes, but I don't write much because wiring socially is hard for me. But there are lots of other sites where I can get my pony fix.

What is your purpose for the site? Even if the financial cost is low, you still probably want to monitor it for spam, and what-not. Are you beginning to feel your time could be spent better elsewhere?

honestly at this point... i just don't know anymore. i feel like it's just here and it kinda lingers. i think its the sake of preservation is why this site is still around, i guess?

tho, i will admit, it's amazing seeing a community like this still around. slow! but surely

id like to see lunachan grow, but i dont think that will ever be likely

people still post and enjoy posting here, so theres that

Oh, my bad

Yes. No hard feelings, but I think Ponyville seems to be the last nail in the coffin.
>What is your purpose for the site?
Well its original tagline was "The official Ponychan drama bunker", but since its creation, efchan, MLPchan, and Ponyville cropped up.
And because of its lack of traffic, there isn't much to moderate.

>i think its the sake of preservation is why this site is still around, i guess?
If it does close, I'll keep it up but make it read-only for 6 months to a year.
>id like to see lunachan grow, but i dont think that will ever be likely
Neither do I, but that's how it is.

There are plenty of other places to do that

I'm not really sure what to say. I feel like Ponyville more or less fulfills the purpose Lunachan used to fulfill for me, and most of the people here I can talk to in other places. But I still feel an attachment to this place.

I don't know how I apply for this considering I made a couple of posts, but I'll put my two cents in. Considering that /GET/ and /ref/ just merged to create the reborn GETchan. That means that this is a perfect opportunity to merge Lunachan in. I've already converted everything back to GETchan rather than USSC stuff and moved all communist stuff over to /pol/. Even the banners. If you guys want, I can even make a further change to something more Neutral to cover all three of us. C'mon, Lunachan. Come be our /luna/ or /chat/. We've all been struggling with post numbers, but we're stronger together.

Not going to happen again as long as someone wants it around.

Chillax dude, if it's about what I said, I apologize

I think a more appropriate name for Lunachan might be Snubchan, because that's pretty much how it's been almost from the beginning. Other imageboards have broken off of Ponychan, every one receiving more attention than Lunachan.
>But I still feel an attachment to this place.
Why is that? Not to sound like a genwunner, but largely because of the above, Lunachan has stagnated and lost its touch a long time ago. I mean hell, when was the last time we had a noteworthy thread after that one in /arch/ you made?

Eh, given the new Ponyville, I'm not sure merging with GETchan would be a great idea. Most of the users here either already post there or post other places (or both). I mean, as a last ditch effort I guess I wouldn't be absolutely opposed to that, but I don't think it would do much
And people will come out of the woodwork again to give reasons not to.

Like I said above it, most of the posters here have other places to post.
Admittedly, one of the reasons I'm hesitant to close it, in addition to the others, is because of gochan. Though if you guys are still open to it, GETchan could use gochan when it's finished.

It's hard to explain. I dunno, I guess on some level I'm just too used to having Lunachan around. I have fond memories of it and it'll be sad to see it go.

Don't let a nostalgia controlled fool like me make you feel obligated to keep beating a dead horse, though.

Back then when I did settle down in Lunachan, I thought this imageboard will be my last one before I move on to forums. After reflecting that thought, I still feel that way.

I have been talked about this before but I still feel to emphasise I like this place because of small community here. Ponyville looks cool and all, but for now I don’t think it’s just same. Still, I respect Zeke’s decision to close down this site, and I believe nothing should be involuntarily keep on.

So, cheers to all you guys :)

I personally like Lunachan for the same reason, it's fairly small and a single post doesn't get lost in a wave of posts.

I personally would be willing to host a forum, as my biggest issue with this current imageboard format is that it's quite easy for the people who mean Lunachan harm to post illegal content.

A forum that required accounts would easily deter those kinds of people. But then again, many of our posters would not like requiring an account, and that's why such a thing hasn't happened.

I don't really like Kusaba's interface either, it's very unorganized in my opinion, and I always stumble through it when cleaning up the aforementioned illegal content. I'm also not too confident in its security because it's written for such a small market and receives fairly minimal development attention.

In the spirit of the OP, I'll reply without reading any of the comments either (apart from that there are loads!)

I do think it serves the same purpose it always has done: drama bunker, quiet corner, somewhere to retreat to when shit is going down on other chans (or other chans are just down)

Sure, I detect that you want more from it and are disappointed when it becomes quiet. To me though, it's that friend you always know you can go back to - you might not communicate at all for months or sometimes even years, but you're always there, the same old you, ready to pick up a comfortable old friendship at any time as if it was only yesterday.

It's not ambitious, if that's what you're looking for, but it's definitely a purpose <3

Also I didn't read the OP properly but TBH I think only asking people who've posted in the last 40 days is completely ignoring views like mine that you perhaps don't want to hear.
No. 99438
You know what Zeke... what's more important than here, is you. I know we don't really talk much, but I still value you over some site, even though I still have an emotional attachment to it, it's not the same as that to another person.

Reading through the thread, I get the strong impression that its wellbeing and sense of purpose (or apparent lack thereof) is really really getting you down. I don't mean this offensively, but you seem very depressed over it. What I said a couple of posts up stands: to me it's that comfortable little quiet room, the old friend that I return to and know is still a friend. I really value it for that. But if it's just getting you down all the time: maybe it's time to call it a day? Not even drag it out, just make a backup available for viewing. Your wellbeing is more important, and I know of a few who've left the fandom completely because they've personally found it better for their mental health.
